MILLTOWN, N.J. - "It's not necessarily gross," said Bruce Schwendeman as he snipped the tendons of a freeze-dried red-tailed hawk. He paused to wipe his bloody hands on his denim apron and looked up at his 77-year-old father, David, who was preparing a Cooper's hawk as flaccid as a rubber chicken. Nearby, a glass-eyed wild boar stared blankly at the dissecting pair, waiting for its nose and tusks to be given the "wet look" (a coat of varnish), and a fluffy white Dahl sheep was shampooed, ready for display.

The Taxidermy Lodge isn't a musty wood-paneled room with lots of dead stuff on the walls. In fact, the lodge isn't a place at all. It's the name of a dance party, and a hot one at that. Established two years ago by poet and Maryland Institute College of Art graduate Justin Sirois, the weekly event was first held at the trendy Canton nightspot Good Love, where the Orlando, Fla., native worked as a bartender on Monday nights. Sirois brought in a few local DJs and promoted the happenings, which, at first, were small and low-key gatherings.

Outstanding among the new windfall of winter novels is a salty coming-of-age tale by Lois-Ann Yamanaka. Set on Hawaii's Big Island, "Heads by Harry" (Farrar, Straus & Giroux, 320 pages, $24) is the story of Toni Yagyuu, daughter of a Japanese taxidermist and his schoolteacher wife, who struggles through a stormy adolescence in the home above her father's shop in the town of Hilo. Caught between her passion for the art of taxidermy and her father's more lofty expectations for her, Toni has equally embattled relationships with the rest of her family, alternating between cruelty and fierce loyalty toward her flamboyantly gay older brother and her vain, fashion-plate younger sister.

BOONSBORO - Tim and Christy Martin fell in love at a taxidermy convention, their eyes locking over talk of a "fleshing machine" - a whirling blade that rips sinew from the underside of animal hides. Together for the last four years, the co-owners of Martin's Taxidermy Studio and Wildlife Artistry in rural Washington County have wielded scalpels, mascara brushes, hair gel, pins, Styrofoam and epoxy to mount squirrels, ducks, turkeys, wild boars and a rare black groundhog from Pennsylvania.

ORLANDO, Fla. -- Laws and sausage have traditionally ranked at the top of the gross-out scale for socially acceptable products. You don't want to watch either one being made, the old saying goes. But the horrors of Capitol Hill and the Jimmy Dean factory seem as delicate and pristine as flower arranging next to the work Ron Morkel does to make an honest living. Morkel is a taxidermist, the middleman between the dead moose on the car roof and the bright-eyed moose on the wall. Most of us, to put it mildly, would rather not know the details of Morkel's craft.
